MLB: 5 Players Who Will Get Dealt Before the Trade Deadline
The MLB Trade Deadline is coming at the end of next month and several players will be on the block, but who are the five guys who will absolutely get dealt? Let’s take a look.
There’s no doubt the Toronto Blue Jays are a terrible team and will be sellers at the deadline, but it’s important for them to ship Stroman out of town.
The right-hander has a 3.31 ERA and could be an appealing piece to a bunch of teams looking for rotation help.
Marcus Stroman is getting paid only $7.4 million this season and is up for arbitration this coming offseason.
Most teams would be lucky to have MadBum in their starting five. It would make sense for teams to call the San Francisco Giants about the lefty’s services.
Madison Bumgarner will be a free agent after this season and with him getting paid $12 million this season, one would assume that the postseason standout would get dealt.
Santana won’t jump out on many baseball fans’ radar. However, he might be the best Seattle Mariner, who teams could pull off a deal for.
The 26-year-old leads the M’s with 48 RBIs and will be in line for arbitration during the offseason. Seattle wants talent, but I think Domingo Santana will have to get paid in a different city with a new team.
Offense has been a hot topic among front offices trying to improve their ball clubs and Santana could net a good return for the rebuilding M’s.
The 29-year-old can play pretty much anywhere on the diamond. He is also off to a hot start to the 2019 season.
The former-Miami Marlin has 17 homers and 37 RBIs entering Monday’s action. So there should be a lot of trade buzz surrounding his name.
The Cincinnati Reds are in the basement of the NL Central. Thus they need a lot of help to become a playoff team.
Derek Dietrich is only getting paid $2 million this season and will be up for arbitration after the season.
Soler is a surprise name and one that could get flipped for minor league depth or another arm for their starting staff.
The 28-year old is on a last place caliber team and could get moved, but why?
Soler is getting paid $8 million this year and next year combined. Plus, the former-Chicago Cub won’t be a free agent until 2022. Therefore, a team looking for a controllable bat for a few seasons might pick up the phone and call Kansas City to try to make things happen.
Jorge Soler has 44 ribbies and 17 long balls to lead the Royals this season.
